Larry Noble’s CNN story, headlined “Soliciting dirt on your opponents from a foreign government is a crime. Mueller should have charged Trump campaign officials with it,” was labeled as an opinion piece and featured a disclaimer that Noble is a CNN contributor but the commentary is solely his own view.

This doesn’t make Trump look good, IMO.

He had the public support behind him but now he just looks like he has an axe to grind.

I have often wondered why the Trump administration doesn’t use the power of the FCC to reign in the blatant spread of false and misleading information. The FCC is there to provide oversight of the networks.

It’s not against the law to lie. More often than not, satire consists of lies. When our “trusted” Congress members speak on the floors of either the Senate or the HOR, they lie with impunity. (Adam Schiff exemplifies this daily.)

When a supposed news source presents claims that are provably untrue, it is subject to liable charges. An “opinion” piece based on false accusations that are presented as facts is not protected.

This is all a waste of time and just makes him and his campaign look petty and stupid. CNN has the lowest ratings out of any network and everyone knows they are incredibly partisan. They haven’t really “damaged” him in the sense that he is still the president and is still running a large and widely covered re-election campaign.
